Multitasking Fashion

To me, having a green wardrobe is not only about buying organic or vintage garments, but also about creating a functional wardrobe with lots of potential for remixing. I want to be able to make the most out of the clothing I have rather than constantly buy trend-based clothes that will most likely be out of style in a few months' time. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not as adventurous and creative with my clothing as I'd like to be. That is one reason why I'm always looking for videos and images that show multiple ways to wear an item, to help get me some inspiration for my own closet. Today, I wanted to share some of them, in hopes that they'll be just as inspirational and help you get the most out of the clothes you already have - and so, be on your way to creating a functional and, most importantly, greener wardrobe.

Scarves are probably my favourite accessory and though there are endless articles and videos on different ways to wear them, these are my 2 favourite ones:

As it turns out, a skirt can be worn in many different ways too:

And finally, the possibilities with a round piece of fabric seem to be practically infinite:

Last week-end, I discovered Chriselle Lim's fashion videos, where she shares plenty of tips about how to create a functional - and fashionable - wardrobe. After watching just a few of them, I was inspired and filled with ideas about how to improve my own wardrobe. These are just some of the ones that I liked best:

I'd love to know, what piece in your wardrobe do you think is the most versatile?


  1. I totally agree with you! I love the skirt and two hole fabric videos that you have linked too! Amazing ideas, although I'm sure if I tried to recreate them they wouldn't look as fab!

    1. Martha, whenever I look at videos or articles like this, I use them just as inspiration and try to adapt them to my own style and taste, and this way I think you're guaranteed to look nothing short of fab! :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great blog! I am following you now! Would you like to follow me back?

  3. I'm always at a loss at how to tie my scarves, so thanks for sharing this!

  4. Im loving blouses right now.. you can wear them buttoned, open, tied at the waist, tied in a know. Veey good post, I think we all get stuck seeing things for simply what they are and not they could be.
